? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. ms. stabenow: thank you, mr. president. today i rise because middle-class families are counting on the house of representatives to do the right thing between now and the end of the year, which is just 19 days away for the house to pass the middle-class tax cuts that we sent them back in july. families need help. when we talk about fiscal cliff, the most important one is the -- what families are struggling with every day, and we only have 19 days until taxes on middle-class families go up by an average of $2,200 if the house of representatives doesn't act to make sure that 98% of the american public is protected from tax increases. as we know, we passed the middle-class tax cut act on july july 25. so far, the house has not acted. 19 days, they have 19 days until the end of this year in order to act. time is running out. country, a long-term plan for fiscal solvency and for our economy. and by the way, we'll never get out of debt with close to 12 million people out of work, so we better be focused on jobs and the economy as i am each and every d
states of michigan and missouri in the procurement. and as a result of that procurement, a new manufacturer that is chosen to locate in the state of illinois, because governor quinn actually aggressively went after that manufacture before it was even known that they would be building any rail cars for this initiative, nepa located their facility in rochelle illinois and have higher 250 people and that is from nothing. we weren't competing with other states. those jobs are new jobs to the united states, new jobs to illinois. so that's cleared a success story. that facility also is making some transit cars for metro which is suburban chicago fixed rail system for commuters. so that is a big success story. and i think i talked briefly about normal illinois. my comments, normal illinois is home to illinois state university, and that in illinois is the station with the second highest ridership, second only to chicago. and that's because they have built this wonderful station to they use tiger funds to build the station. that is a station that connects the riders getting off of the t
, they are on the brink. we need to put some value into products and sell them here. host: mike from michigan offering his remedies to help fix the situation in the country. here is built king's take -- bill king on twitter. another story from "the washington post" -- you can read the full story on the unproductive 112th congress in today's washington post. it's good to jump from antenna on the republican line. caller: good morning, america. balancedalking about budgets and all these different things that we should be doing to help the country. i believe that the pier problem is the federal reserve. any country that has had a central bank and up failing and collapsing. we are no different than any other country. the loan us money and interest and we cannot pay it back. we have been doing that since around world war room one. host: regardless of what happens in 48 hours in the negotiations, you do not think we are dealing with the real issue? caller: yes, sir. we have to go back to american banks, not a central bank. until we do that, we will end up and voting on ourselves. it would be better to do it now
: that from inside "the washington post." ed is on the phone from michigan. good morning to you. caller: good morning, c-span. i have listened to some of what the democrats have said. the way i look at it -- if the rich, if they are worried about 3% raise, one of the middle class and the poor or about the same raise? is it your patriotic duty to pay taxes? if the poor are concerned about their money going down, a lot of energy regulations are coming into effect that will cost electric costs to co-op which will affect the poor just as badly as it is the rich? host: mark from ohio, good morning. caller: all the power was taken from the epa and given to the nra. there is no fiscal cliff. there was another so-called fiscal cliff in 2008. give money to the billionaires and banks. when eisenhower took office, he gutted the military. taxes were 9% on corporations. 10 trillion dollars being horded. the problem lies and propaganda. 90% of all our information from the tv and the radio comes out of the state of texas and new york city. that is wall street. there is an economy based on military bases and
in allenson, michigan, on our line for independents. go ahead, jack. caller: i want to ask mr. rosenberg if he has ever heard of lincoln electric in cleveland, ohio. host: and why did he wanted to know that? caller: well, they wrote a book, james f. lincoln wrote a book, a new approach to industrial economics where they have no unions. everybody is responsible for their own work. they do peace work. everybody's responsible. everybody has a lifetime job. they get huge pieces of the pie. and ownership is -- the people, the workers, everybody owns the piece of the pie. host: what does this have to do with the fiscal cliff? caller: well, if more -- if more people -- if more industries would go to that, they wouldn't fall off the cliff. everybody would go to work. host: mr. rosenberg? guest: so i haven't heard of that but it sounds like a great place to be and live. i would have to get the name of that again. host: next up is don on the washington redskins. -- "washington journal." caller: i've been on social security for several years now. it's my understanding that the amount of money that you pa
direction? mr. durbin: in response to the senator from michigan, the republican senate leader, senator mcconnell, has such a strong appetite for the filibuster that we have seen 386 or 387 filibusters in the last six years, and now he has decided another good idea is to propose a bill and then filibuster your own bill. i do believe that's history in the making, but that's why this appetite for the filibuster in the senate has to change. what an abuse that we can't have a majority vote on something the republicans proposed and the democrats were prepared to vote for. this would have been a true bipartisan measure. good news, maybe lead the news across america. it really is unfortunate. mr. schumer: would the minority leader yield? mr. reid: madam president? i have some business here. you will get the floor right back. madam president, i now move to proceed to calendar number 554, s. 3637. the presiding officer: the clerk will report the motion. the clerk: motion to proceed to the consideration of calendar number 554, s. 3637, a bill to temporarily extend the transaction account guarantee p
that, if i neededed to remind you. just now, michigan's house of representatives passed a right to work law. the 52-58 vote with thousands of demonstrators who packed into the capitol building caused state police to lock it down. the right to work law will make michigan more competitor, says the governor, though representatives say it will result in lower pay. >>> and apple news to tell you about. apple ceo tim cook says his company will start building one of the computers in the u.s. next year. cnn's dan simon says the decision is a bit of a gamble because the u.s. made products may be more expensive. >> there are two ways of looking at it. you're using cheap labor in china. you're not going to have that in the united states, and also you're talking about adding infrastructure costs, how that might impact their bottom line remains to be seen, but tim cook made it clear this is not a financial move necessarily. this is a move to really bring back jobs to the united states and do something positive for the american economy. >> for now apple isn't saying which computer will be built in th
and it's the first salvo, so, michigan mcconnell laughs at it and timothy geithner hands it to them. this isn't real. >> i didn't know that first was the first offer. we have been talk about this for months. why is it now, i'm sure after the election and everybody knew where both sides stood and you would think some sort of progress. >> thanksgiving congress was off and to today's point the christmas holiday coming up here, only a few weeks, the 30 day window is not a 30 day window. >> and all of the congressmen we speak to off camera, we say is there going to be a deal, probably in the last minute we'll hash something out a ridiculous charade. get it done. >> let us know. >> and this story keeps resonating. the beautiful story that the new york post captured this week after police officer who didn't know that his photo was being shot and he was giving a homeless man socks and shoes that he had bought out of his own pocket. the development. >> the n.y.p.d. officer on the screen, larry deprimmo, now the brother, a random act of kindness it wasn't something planned or thought out and
's get a republican voice. our next caller is calling from west bloomfield, michigan, on the republican line. good morning. caller: i would like to get your thoughts on a balanced approach and have unbiased taxation by using a flat tax. that way you can calculate the amount of taxes we need for the deficit over 10 years. another point is to control the spending on entitlements by not giving millionaires social security benefits, thereby satisfying president obama's approach. instead of doing it through taxation, he can do it through the entitlements. guest: those are both ideas that have been raised, especially the social security and medicare benefits for the wealthy and potentially might not need them to live off of. one tricky part of that is wealthier americans have been paying these taxes for decades into social security and medicare if and a lot of folks have a problem with the idea of taking away their benefits they have paid for if just because they happen to be more well off. and issued the first caller raised and something to watch is this could really sort of set the tone for
and going to miss our back and forth about the michigan wolverines. (laughter) >> you or dave always have to get a dig in. >> dave: enjoyed it, chris and thank you, we'll watch the show today. it's a good one. >> clayton: check your local listings, chris, thanks so much. coming up on the show, if you hate atm fees you're going to hate this. now you're not going to get a warning if you're getting a charge. >> juliet: we all know the fees are going to be there some way anyway. and is there a fatherhood crisis? why the number of two parent households are on decline and affect for years to come. my old friend is coming up. ♪ i will be the one who loves you till the end of time ♪ let's give thanks - for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like lerty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a man on the moon and a phone in your pocket. our country's gone through a lot over the centuries and a half. but this idea isn'
: michigan woman files a lawsuit after her car was repossessed, why? >> she says the compani' that repossessed the car kept about $29 of gas in the car and didn't pay her back. she is filing a class ax lawsuit. this one was dismissed. file a class action lawsuit had their cars repossessed taken back because they hadn't made the payments this $29. add everybody equal $5 million. the court threw that out. >> some guys get into a bar fight. an shizzer bush sued because the bolt was used as a weapon. >> i got into bar fight. crazy bar known to be a crazy bar. and i got hit in the face with this long neck anheuser-busch beer thing. and anheuser-busch, you should have put a warning. you shouldn't have long necks out there. stubbled, or short ones. >> dave: if it was a red stripe you would have been okay. in other words it's anheuser's bush's fault because you get into a fight. >> dave: that makes total sense to me. that's not ridiculous. >> clayton: nfl fan suing the dallas cowboys over a hot bench? >> she said she was at this game in august of 2010. the bench was black. black benc
